Marcelina Cravat of Passelande Pictures shares her passion for revealing truth through her award-winning documentary films. With two completed award winning films, Angel Azul and Dirt Rich, already under her belt, Marcy is currently in production on her third film, Terrain which chronicles the subject of terrain theory vs germ theory.
Marcy received her training at The Art Center College of Design after graduating from The University of California in San Diego, and later in life she attended The Berkeley Digital Film Institute for film training. Making a transition from photography to film came later in life when her love for storytelling motivated her to return to school to pursue a career as a writer/director. Upon graduating she co-founded a small production company specializing in portrait style documentaries on artists and then went on to found Passelande Pictures that serves as an umbrella for all of her projects going forward.
Marcelina grew up around Hollywood sets as daughter of character actor Nick Cravat, Burt Lancaster’s life long chum, circus partner and co-star. For years she was an editorial photographer, transitioning into film later in life after her kids were grown. Marcy is passionate about the subject matter of her films which motivates deep exploration, growth and an ever expanding understanding about human consciousness.
